Jackson duo offers art and chocolate for Valentine's Day

From Wilson artist Shannon Troxler:

Art and chocolate. The bare necessities of life.

Two girls from Jackson have teamed up to bring you just that. Kristen Simpson, a chocolatier. (Teton Chocolat) and Shannon Troxler, a fine artist, have combined their talents to create Teton Chocolat Boxes. We use repurposed cigar boxes decorated with a limited edition print of Shannon's art work and filled with Kristen's delicious hand crafted chocolates.

Each box is filled with an assortment of milk and dark chocolate (with nuts) hand-crafted in the shape of ornate flowers or Venus nipples dusted with iridescent colors. A portion of the proceeds from each box sold goes to the oncology department of St. John's hospital in Jackson to help in the research and treatment of
cancer patients in our community.

Order Direct by Feb 4 for $28 ($3 goes to charity).

After Feb. 4, the Chocolate Boxes will be at Ella's Room and at the JH Flower Co. for $34 apiece.
